  • Great location and environment
  • Some courses seem a little bit chaotic (not all collaborations are successful)
CCC is a great film school for many reasons: different levels of courses allows you to explore your preference for filmmaking step by step as well as teaching various aspects in film production process, so that you would gain lots of experience and become a professional in terms of thinking and executing. Professors there are great as they do respect students' ideas and who you are, and as a big school with students from all over the world they respect all the cultural differences. For cinema directing and many other courses, collaboration is the key as those courses allows you to get to know all the roles in film production. Other than production courses, film study courses such as World Cinema is also really fun to take.
It also has a great location near the center of the city, great traffic, and great view alongside Lake Michigan. Hope it helps.
